This could be the worst of all the Monkey Island ports. Its a port of the PC VGA CD Version, including the MT-32 Synth rendition of the music as Audio tracks, and the UI from Monkey Island 2
I say worst because it feels rushed like a quick money grab. The audio is constantly inturupted to load conversation or sfx data during a scene which ruins any immersion. The choice of colours is also strange, dark almost like "Half-Brite" mode. (Amiga:Midnight resistance) The game retains the original 320x200 resolution.
The Swordmaster quest was abit of a grind. The game slowed right down here and made it difficult to navigate conversation reply choices. And lastly, When on the ghostship, you literaly are invisable. You canonly be seen as a few stray pixels move across the screen. Im sure all other versions had a blue shimering effect. Maybe the system just doesnt have enough memory to cache anything, but the game should be faster with two 68000 cpus at work (genesis+megacd). I do feel the game would have benefited from native FM Music rather then pre rendered cd audio, if only to avoid audio disruption. I could say the cd audio was included as best versions of monkey island soundtrack, but I think it was just a quick/lazy way of having music in this version of the game.
If I sound Bias at all reading the above, Ill admit that Im more partial to the awsome Amiga version of the Game and its rendition of the Music ;) There should have been a kick ass CD32 version! (Like Simon the Sorceror)
"The Stump" joke isnt included in this version of the game (or other cd versions). I have tacked onto the end a video of Guybrish having to hold his breath for 10 mins (Shortend for sanity). It appears you cant die in this version as the game auto saves you.
There is no saveGame feature in this version. The game will give you a four digit code which you can right down and use to continue your game later.
